SpeedUp: Development of mobile and self-organising communication and data platforms and of strategies for organisation and action in complex, large-scale situations.
Mass casualty incidents necessitate a close cooperation of a series of different security forces (i.e. fire brigades, police, emergency medical services, technical emergency services). To this end, self-organising communicative solutions that can be employed across these services had to be developed. FInKA’s contribution to the project consisted of conceiving inter-organisational cooperation as an intercultural process, analysing organisational cultures and different styles of leadership and communication to assist its partners in designing appropriate interfaces.
